First harvest of honey

It’s not much, but it’s GOOD. We harvested our honey today for the first time since we got the hive. We just simply cut the comb out of the frames and crammed it into a couple of jars. After sampling quite a bit of course. Now we have a little of our very own honey to enjoy this winter. We’ve been buying honey from a local apiary, it’s good too; but I’d rather raise my own – I know how it’s processed, and it costs less too.

It was kinda neat watching the bees “clean up” after we harvested the honey. They came and “robbed” the little drips that were left afterward.

Until next time…..
